PHILADELPHIA — Michael Young hit an RBI single with two outs in the 13th inning to lift Philadelphia to a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox, giving the Phillies a split of a day-night doubleheader Saturday.

John Mayberry Jr. hit a tying, solo homer in the seventh off Hector Santiago, and All-Star Domonic Brown threw out Jeff Keppinger trying to score from second on Tyler Flowers' single to left to end the top half of the 11th.

Simon Castro (0-1) walked Humberto Quintero leading off the bottom of the 13th and Jimmy Rollins then reached on a fielder's choice. He advanced on Joe Savery's sacrifice and scored on Young's hit to right, sliding headfirst just ahead of Casper Wells' strong throw to the plate.

Alexei Ramirez hit a tiebreaking double in the 11th inning to help Chicago win the opener 5-4.

It was a costly loss for Philadelphia because center fielder Ben Revere broke his right foot on a foul ball before grounding into a double play to end the game. Revere was hitting .305.

After a 41-minute rain delay following the top of the ninth in Game 1, White Sox righty Nate Jones escaped a no-out, second-and-third jam in the bottom half. Ramon Troncoso (1-2) then left the winning run on third in the 10th to earn the win.

Hector Santiago had allowed just two hits before Mayberry connected with two outs in the seventh to tie it. Santiago allowed one run and three hits, striking out nine in 7 1-3 innings.

Phillies starter John Lannan threw eight strong innings, allowing one run and four hits.

White Sox catcher Josh Phegley finished the second game at second base after Gordon Beckham left with a left quad contusion following a collision with right fielder Wells.

Savery (2-0) pitched a scoreless 13th to win the nightcap.

The teams were forced to play two after Friday night's interleague game was rained out.

"The last few innings, guys were hanging by the skin of their teeth," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said after Game 1. "It wasn't pretty, but it worked out."

Beckham's sacrifice fly in the fifth inning put the White Sox up 1-0 in the nightcap.

In the first game, Alejandro De Aza hit a two-out triple off J.C. Ramirez (0-1) in the 11th and Alexei Ramirez followed with a liner to right-center for his fourth hit. He then scored when shortstop Rollins booted Alex Rios' grounder for an error.

"Ramirez has been swinging the ball well, being aggressive," Ventura said.

The Phillies fell to 3-10 when they have a chance to move to .500. They won consecutive series over first-place Pittsburgh and Atlanta, and took three of four from defending NL East champion Washington.

But the inability to hit a sacrifice fly cost Philadelphia against the White Sox, who entered with the third-worst record in the majors.

"We had some golden chances," manager Charlie Manuel said. "All we had to do was hit the ball and couldn't do it. The game was sitting there for us."
